“Aparicíon” - A Staged Reading
Aparicíon is the story of Natalia, a Mexican born Tejana whose day-to-day life is interrupted by the appearance of an Entity. As Natalia muddles through the complicated relationships in her life – an affair with her sister’s husband, her domineering and class-obsessed Mexican family, her friendships with a working class Tex/Mex woman and her new neighbor, a transplant from Chicago who is one of the only African-American men in her town – she struggles to bind this Being to her.
A Staged Reading @ Galería de la Raza

SATURDAY, September 17
S-e-x-Oh! is based on autobiographical writing and community interviews, S-e-x-Oh! places the stereotypes about Latina sexuality – the virginal mother, the pregnant teen, the “spicy” sexpot- within the larger context of Latina lives and experiences. Nothing is off limits from masturbation, exploration, obsession, jealousy, phone sex, perverts and piojos, to the more serious topics of molestation and abortion. The stories in S-e-x-Oh! move discussion about Latina sexuality beyond the Virgin/Whore dichotomy portrayed not just in the popular media, but in our own homes as well.
